Rain On Halloween? Indoor Halloween Events and Trick-or-Treating

Chicagoland natives are used to Halloweens that are downright wet and frigid! If the weather turns out to be not as picturesque as you imagined, consider taking your kids to one of these great indoor events. That way, the kids can still trick-or-treat, but in a warm, toasty environment.

If you already have an indoor plan (that’s not listed above) for a potentially rainy Halloween, please let us know where you’re headed! And, in addition to these events, another indoor idea (that’s thoughtful, too!) is to trick-or-treat at your local nursing home. While many nursing homes happily host these types of events, be sure to call ahead to confirm necessary details.
